AUGUSTA, Maine — A pair of home invaders were caught in the act at a Bond Brook Road residence Monday, and police are searching for them.

Augusta police were dispatched to the home around 4 p.m., according to Deputy Chief Jared Mills.

The burglars managed to flee with undisclosed items “with the use of the threat of force,” Mills said.

Police did not disclose if any weapons were involved.

“At this point we’re not releasing a ton of details until we can track down the leads and develop them as something that’s going to help solve the case,” Mills explained.

No injuries were reported in the burglary.

Mills said one man stands between 5-foot-8 to 6 feet tall and was wearing dark blue jeans with a zipped-up hooded sweatshirt. The deputy chief said the sweatshirt was blue and white.

A description of the other robber was not available, according to Mills.

Anyone with information on the incident should call Augusta police Detective Chris Blodgett at 626-2370, ext. 3412.
